In this article we have updated forecast maps of air pressure with precipitation type in Europe, T2m anomaly in Europe and T2m in central parts of Europe until 16. April 2021.
We have warned before late spring coldwave in Europe in series of articles before /e.g. https://mkweather.com/the-next-coldwave-in-europe-will-be-drastic-temperature-records-snow-and-extreme-frosts/; https://mkweather.com/where-will-the-april-coldwave-be-strongest-heavy-frosts-estimates-of-potential-national-tops-of-minimum-temperatures-below-1000-masl-in-europe/; https://mkweather.com/polar-vortex-brings-snowing-3-14-april-parts-of-europe-with-blizzard-50-cm-of-snow/; https://mkweather.com/the-uk-hits-the-coldest-april-weather-in-history-all-time-record-154c-should-be-overcame-record/; https://mkweather.com/april-snow-hits-europe-coldwave-will-be-long-and-strong-snow/; https://mkweather.com/polar-vortex-brings-to-western-europe-10-day-coldwave-some-runs-expect-blizzard-for-central-parts-of-continent//.
It appears, that the most of snow and subsequent severe frosts are waiting us from Tuesday to Thursday, 6.-8. April.
Firstly, cold front on the front side of part of polar vortex will bring widespread snowfall and snow showers across continental Europe and British Islands, both, then, extremely cold mornings, with temperatures 0/-5°C, near snow cover -5/-10°C, in basins and valleys below 1000 MASL with snow cover only -10/-15°C surprise many European countries.
On maps below we should see, how pressure systems, cold air and frosts will be shifting across Europe during the next 12 days.
The first coldwave (until Thursday, 8. April) will be alternated by relatively warmer weather around Friday, 9. April, but already at the weekend and early next week, between 10.-14. April, the next Arctic blast hit mainly western and northern Europe, including the Spain and Portugal, with additional late frosts and in colder regions snow showers.
Very warm weather is still forecasted only after 15. April, we will look at it in the next Mkweather article.
Then, Mkweather will be focused on Summer 2021 forecasts for continents, therefore stay watch weather and climate with us.
